Quick Take: Quinn gets call vs. Buccaneers and NFL Network reporter Ian Rapoport has his thoughts on the game:

Why this game is intriguing: At least the Kansas City Chiefs get away from home, where their frothy fans won't have the chance to cheer an injury to their starting quarterback. The scariest part is Matt Cassel (head) is out, so Brady Quinn will get the start. You wanted it, Kansas City fans, you got it. By the time these 60 minutes are up, you might learn why Cassel was the starter for so many weeks. However, if Quinn can simply not turn the ball over, this team has a chance -- and quite possibly, a real quarterback controversy.

What to watch: The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are coming off a bye that followed three straight near-miss losses. The record is poor at 1-3, but there is plenty of time to show those losses weren't indicative of this franchise's progress under Greg Schiano. It's just their margin for error is thin. With an extra week to prepare, facing a quarterback who hasn't started in a long time, don't be shocked to see Tampa Bay load up on the run, forcing -- daring -- Quinn to try and beat them. Of course, plenty of teams do that, and it hasn't slowed down Jamaal Charles yet.
